1965 Volvo 121 1.8


An excellent strong easy to maintain car


Touch wood nothing yet.

Have replaced most seat cushions with good second hand ones.

There is some play in the prop shaft which needs looking at.

Steering wheel had to be centered.

General Comments:

I love the look of the car, it has a lot of style.

Automatic gearbox isn't the fastest thing around, but it allows you to hang onto the steering wheel, and makes relaxed driving in town..

Seats are very comfortable and easy to clean.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well nearly 10 years on and I still have the car. In 2008 I fitted twin SC carbs and a sports exhaust.

48 years young and the car still has its original sills (which are now full of Dinitrol treatment).

Still very happy.
